Reader Poll: Foyer Decor

Last year I polled my lovely readers on what the heck to put in our entry way wall niche. The most popular vote was to patch it up and the second most popular vote was a bronze statue of Matt. Unfortunately for Matt, I secretly slid in the patching project to our kitchen renovation.

So now that we’re all patched up I’m polling y’all again…

What should I hang on this wall?

And before you respond, two notes:

1. I don’t want any art as I’m afraid it will clash with our gorgeous dining room art.

2. I do not want to put any sort of furniture (ex: small table, etc.) in this space!

So now what? Family pictures? A mirror? A poster size print of Matt’s Hall of Fame magazine feature?

While you’re thinking about it, I thought I’d share our progress of this little space since we moved in…

What kind of mirror is the most suitable? I sometimes buy good mirrors, but when they come into the room, they look a little out of place.

I would do black & white dubose pictures of your kids with their black & white clay rice silohettes (spelling?). If you have those....something very classic and southern...that you won’t get tired of seeing or have to update as they grow up....

Framed family photo or a family photo canvas that you get a custom frame made for or a unique mirror :)

One of my friends has a window frame hanging in her foyer and she changes the decor hanging on it seasonally (wreath, monogram letter, etc.). Very pretty!

Mirror all the way friend!! - there's one at Hobby Lobby that I specifically have in mind - skinny but decorative! It'll be the perfect accent to the space!
